Akwa Ibom State Government has released two dedicated Accounts in Zenith and First Bank for voluntary donations by Non Profit organizations, Religious Bodies and public spirited individuals across the world that have heeded the call to contribute towards the building of the state 8500 capacity International Worship Centre.
In a Release titled “Let’s build for the Lord”, a befitting place of worship, and made available to the media, the State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Charles Udoh, disclosed the Zenith Bank Account Number as 1015488911 while that of the First Bank is 2032802382.
The Information Commissioner urged all organizations and individuals willing to “Sow a Seed” in the International Worship centre to pay into those two dedicated accounts while those with material contributions can contact the Special Assistant to the Governor on Religious Matters, Rev. Daniel Akwatang for further enquiry through phone No. +234 803 427 1585.
Earlier in the day while on two separate Live AKBC TV Programmes, “Ntiantia Asaka” and “Centre Points”, Ibibio and English programmes respectively, Charles Udoh had urged all to heed the call of Governor Udom Emmanuel to contribute towards the building of the Worship Centre for God in gratitude to God’s benevolence to the state as an entity and the people of the State in general.
He said the worship centre which will have smaller Chapels within the complex, will enable religious groups with no erected structure of their own to utilize the service of those chapels rather than use public schools and cause damage to furniture and facilities in such affected institutions.
The Information Boss emphasized that, all donations and contributions will be duly acknowledged and catalogued for posterity adding that, the International Worship Centre will also serve as a tourist centre to boost religious tourism in the State.
